Just the once, it would be really nice if the left hand actually knew what the right hand was up to regarding this diagnosis malarkey ( I would say farce, but I'm not quite there yet!).
After drawing shedloads of blood for Anti phospholipid syndrome- which seemed a complete waste of time and money given that I've never had clotting problems in my life- (though I do understand the need to rule it out given that it is a condition that can be confused with MS, it may well have been better if the Rheumatologist had actually asked me about it instead of making sweeping assumptions) the one blood test that may just clinch a diagnosis - ENA -has not been conducted by the lab because they lost the sample not once, not twice, but a truly staggering FOUR times!!!! I've just come back from the hospital where I've had it drawn for the FIFTH time.
Perhaps I should have arranged for a security guard to accompany it on this occasion. At least then it might stand a chance of getting to its destination safely!!
